obama is a one-term president. but i say, aim higher. make him a no-term president. let's build a time machine, go back to the 1970's, and convince young barack to go into dentistry! [laughter] he would have been good. i would have trusted him for that. [laughter] but on the slim chance that my time machine plan doesn't work, there may be another way to win. republicans have an edge in 2012, thanks to a new study out of the university of chicago which found that seeing an american flag can shift voters towards republicanism. before the 2008 election, researchers gave two groups with the same political beliefs questionnaires asking who they were going to vote for: obama or mccain. the questionnaires were identical except one group's form had a small american flag and the other did not. after the election, researchers found that those who saw the flag were less likely to have voted for obama. that means mccain could've won, if only he'd shown up to debates like this. [laughter] threw it away. he threw that one away. [ laughter ] this study has me thinking. we may have a new gop frontrunn
. in his 2008 win, president obama was the choice of 60% of self-described moderates in the exit polls. today he still has 55% of those moderates. what do moderates favor? when it comes to the national debt ceiling, 55% of moderates say raise it. bob, we have two big news stories facing us. the unemployment rate going up to 9.2%. the united states facing a debt crisis. maybe not reaching the debt ceiling bill by the end of this month. the republicans are using the jobless figures to say no taxes whatsoever. they're also saying no deal. have they misread the american public? >> this is a moment when obama has to deliver. there's no question. on the economic front, if there is a default, we face a catastrophe. the talk -- one of the plans being discussed, which is the c.e.o. told me being discussed in the white house is they got that. i mean, the theme is postponement. the republicans in a sense are right. you can't raise taxes when the economy is so slow. the democrats are right. you can't cut spending when the economy is in this condition. so what do you do? postpone. what they say is,
, medicaid, the stalemate continues to center on taxes. president obama wants a debt ceiling deal to include tax hikes on wealthy americans, but republicans say tax hikes will hurt business investment and risk taking, both of which mean more jobs, sorely needed with the national unemployment rate of 9.2%. but republican senate minority leader mitch mcconnell says president obama wants to make government bigger instead of making investment, risk taking, and a competitive economy bigger. the senate minority leader says that mr. obama wants big government, not a big economy. >> republicans have tried to persuade the president of the need for a course correction. but weeks of negotiations have shown that his commitment to big government is simply too great to lead to the kind of long-term reforms we need. >> question. when the negotiations started, president obama was looking for a big deal. $4 trillion in spending cuts and tax hikes. has the big deal turned into a big fizzle, pat buchanan? >> it has not, john. did it for awhile but now it is back, and we're talking about something close to adds

"the five" starts right now. ♪ ♪ interest oh, bob. so we're going to jump right into tonight with poll numbers that i can't figure out there have been new results out this week, in particular a quinnipiac poll. i pronounced it. that shows 38% of americans think obama is doing the worst job they have seen when it comes to handling the country's problems. i get that. what i don't get, in the same poll, obama's job approval rating is 47%. that is like a difference of a million percent. so what is it, america? you think obama is an okay guy though his performance stinks? no wonder i drink. juan, welcome to the program.

president obama and the republican leaders ended earlier this evening with no deal. tonight's meeting lasted just over an hour. with no meeting planned for tomorrow. the white house says the president will hold a press conference tomorrow morning. they have left the possibility of a weekend meeting up in the air. during today's meeting, house majority leader eric cantor reportedly remained silent the entire time. republicans are still refusing a generational opportunity to cut social safety net they have been after for decades, the new deal. president obama put the country before his own political future in an effort to solve a crisis republicans basically created. president obama knows the stakes. his treasury secretary tim geithner laid it out today. >> we've looked at all available options. and we have no way to give congress more time to solve this problem and we're running out of time. and the eyes of the country are on us and the eyes of the world are us and we need to make sure we send together and send a signal to take the steps necessary to avoid default and also take advantage of t
